A breath of fresh air” was an apt description for the sentiments expressed by nationals and residents of St. Kitts and Nevis who are enjoying the enhanced peace and security, resulting largely from the committed efforts of law enforcement, increased public cooperation, and the desire of young men to exit a life of crime and violence.

At a press conference on Tuesday, August 13, 2019, Acting Commissioner of the Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force, Hilroy Brandy, shared that the combined efforts of the security forces, the public support, and the Peace Initiative, have resulted in the seizure of 43 illegal firearms for 2019. Thirty of the guns and 73 rounds of assorted ammunition were surrendered under the Peace Initiative – a programme introduced in March 2019.
